One Cake, Three Evil Genius Stencils AND 3 Videos Below!!
#1) Our Vienna Swag Stencil- Amazing AND Super Mathyhead!!
You heard us...you actually DO use this stuff outside of school. So put on your nerd-hats, cause we're gonna give you a lesson in Cakey Geometry.
It's pretty simple, really... The distance around any circle (or round cake in our case) is the diameter of the cake multiplied by this crazy magical number called Pi. Mmmmm....pie. No, not that kind of pie, the greek letter Pi, which represents that magical mystical number 3.14159265359 or as us "close enough" types go 3.14. So if you have a 6" round cake, the distance around it is 6x3.14-ish. The distance around a 12" round cake is 12x3.14, around a 9" is 9x3.14...you dig? This little trick got the ECG thinking. How's about we make a stencil pattern that is exactly 3.14" wide. That way, that pattern would always line up around any standard round cake? And so we give you our first Mathematically proven, super smart nerd stencil...meet our Vienna Swag Stencil.
You guessed it, each swag on this stencil measures 3.14", so if you have a 6" round cake, six of the swags will line up around the cake without getting some ugly seam where only half a swag is hangin' out there like a sore thumb. Same stencil will work for your 9" round tier, only, 'cept, you guessed it...nine swags. Now you're with me, eh? Pretty math-tastic, eh? Now why didn't we think of this sooner? Hey, cut a girl some slack...she's a baker, not a rocket scientist. So get yourself one of these evil little Vienna Swag stencils and decorate in the comfort of knowing that some old Greek guy figured it all out for us. Mmm...greek. Now if you'll excuse us, we're off to find us a good Greek restaurant. All of this mathing makes the ECG hungry. Oh, while we're eating why don't you check out the video below... oh, before you do that, check this stencil's mathy companion: The Vienna Border Stencil, yep, you guessed it. Also 3.14" seamless swags...sweet!
Now, let's go to the video...
